    Default Reinbursement for post op pain management

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone have any resources as to reinbursement for post op pain management surgical codes for anesthesiologist? I have looked in my contracts and there is nothing documented so I am unsure what the average reinbursement is. Thank you

    In the ASA Relative Value Guide, 01996 has 3 base unit value - reimbursement should be at 3 x your contracted price per unit for each payer. 01996 may have been broken out by you or the payer and listed separately at a fee-for-service rate. Also - many contracts pay items not specifically listed separately at a percentage of the current Medicare rate. Kind of a default within many contracts.
